Harvard Grad, Physicist, Author: SAT/ACT/GRE/Math/Science/Writing

***My Experience*** In my 10+ years as an educator and tutor I've worked one-on-one with dozens of students on test prep (SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, GRE, GMAT, and Regents), academic subject support (math, physics, chemistry, and Spanish), writing, and college application coaching. My students range in age from 10 to 50 and come from diverse educational backgrounds. I graduated magna cum laude in English from Harvard University, and I have a master's degree from Columbia University, wher... [more]

Study Skills

A key component to success on any exam and in any academic subject is having the right study skills. This will save you a great deal of time and energy. When I taught physics at Columbia University, I helped students with their study strategies in a class setting as well as in "help room" sessions. And I have extensive experience tutoring students in academic subjects such as physics and mathematics, which require a rigorous set of study skills that go hand-in-hand with knowledge acquisition and problem-solving techniques.
